10:02pm
in tonight. what's the issue? >> reporter: i can ditto on the weather. it was eerie. it was absolutely silent when the last out hit the glove. the only thing that we could hear was a couple of whoop whoops out of the giants' clubhouse. as we go into the giants' clubhouse we detected a quiet confidence headed into tomorrow. >> i definitely wasn't happy with walking you know. i think i balked four -- walked four. but i wasn't happy about that. it's my first world series and i've been waiting for this since i was 5 years old and i was not going to two down without sight. >> can you smell it and taste it? >> we up 3-0. we antisleeping on nobody. but it's definitely -- ain't sleeping on nobody. but it's definitely within reach. we're in a position we believed we should be all year long. we have one more game to win. i mean -- we're up 3-0. pretty
10:03pm

10:09pm
supporters. the california teachers' association. meanwhile the small business action committee raised more than $47 million to fight it. and rival proposition 38 would raise taxes for all californiaons with money going to schools. tom, chairman of the california republican party is confident 30 will fail. just like other proposed tax hikes before it. >> raising taxes even higher in california will drive away more jobs. and will collect less money over time if this passed than more. >> well, i think it's going to be a tough battle. the governor certainly is out there stumping for the measure. i think you're foining to start to see support climb. >> reporter: prop 32 meanwhile would ban unions from using payroll deducted funds for political purposes. the democrats were urging voters to vote no on that today and its approval currently is just 39%. ann? >> thank you so much. and we've just ten days before the election, the presidential candidates hit the battleground states today. president obama was in new
